Tomorrow, Little Rock’s Bear Colony will be releasing their new full-length Soft Eyes via Esperanza Plantation. The album is the band’s first collection of new material in five years since their breakthrough debut We Came Here to Die. This release finds the band moving forward with more polished song construction and lusher soundscapes. Much of the inspiration for this record came from founder and vocalist Vincent Griffin’s mother’s struggle and subsequent death from terminal lung cancer this past September. The release is dedicated to her memory.
One of the several standout tracks that has been on repeat is the dense, electronic “Flask Retort.” The video depicts a day in the life a gent with some pretty colorful effects showing through. The clip was directed by the previously mentioned Vincent Griffin and Jared Hankins. You can find it below along with a download of the song.
